Love this!!! And needed to see this today.... missing my best girl .... took Jasper for a sunset beach walk and we walked past where I let Shelby leave her tired body and become my forever angel. I looked for signs and saw none but then I got home and saw this! This is the sign I was looking for.

Thank you for being the amazing person and posting these things!

hugs and love,

alison with spirit shelby and little jasper lily too

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Very nice Elizabeth...very comforting.

"Laughed as we always laughed....." Right up until moments before Happy Hannah's actual transition, she and I were able to laugh together. Nice to be reminded of that.

I know there is something of comfort for everyone in that quote.
.
Thank you for being you.

With love,

Sally and My Eternal Light Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

So perfectly said, thank you for sharing this one, I've never seen it.

It's funny how society thinks we're crazy when we talk to our deceased loved ones, share photos, keep a shrine. I'll always believe as Holland did, these souls are always with us.

I agree .... no one gets it when I grieve and cry for a beloved fur baby I have never met (as I have over the past 2 days for Nixon and Charley).... and people I have never met but that have touched my soul and my heart in ways that those in my very inner circle never have... 

I feel and believe Shelby is with me daily and some days ... it is the only way I can get through a day! Feeling her paw on me. 

I am forever grateful for this loving community!

That's because there are no people like dog people. One of my favorite quotes is "Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character". I can't tell you how many times I've lost respect for someone just based on statements they make about animals. Most of us on here will never meet each other, or meet each others dogs, but that doesn't mean our hearts don't feel sympathy for each other. That's what makes us different, we have a sense of humanity and that's why I love this group. Humanity is hard to find, but it's alive and kicking here.

Thank you for sharing this. 

My mom always says you can tell good of a parent that someone will be by watching how they are with their dogs.  In that case my ex sis in law should have never had kids. 

I know I grieve for everyone who loses a furbaby.  Some more than others but the pain is still there.  I know that I may not be able to meet everyone but there are some that I have and I feel that I have known them all my life from this site.  It's such a connection. 

Next year I know I am planning on meeting a few more 🙂

I LOVE this!  Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing.  Like Alison, I too, have been having "one of those days", one of those days in which my heart is just sad.  I woke up this morning missing my sweet Eddy so much.  It was five months yesterday in which I last saw my sweet boy's face and looked into those huge brown eyes.  I was just thinking to myself "what is wrong with me?" " I should be over this by now! "  I just happened to log into Tripawds and see this beautiful post and I cannot tell you how much it helped me!  Thank you again for posting!   

Betsy Golden and Angel, Eddy.  Eddy was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma 7-23-14, had a left rear amputation 8-07-14, had 3 rounds of carboplatin chemotherapy,  a small lung met was discovered in October, had 2 rounds of doxorubicin, and unfortunately more lung mets were discovered.  Eddy fought cancer valiantly and went to the Rainbow Bridge 1-6-15, at the age of 7 years and 359 days, just six days short of his 8th birthday.   Best Dog, Ever....you will never be forgotten.

Betsy, nothing is "wrong" with you! You mourn for your sweet Eddy. You loved him so, and he loved you! You miss him. Everything is RIGHT between the two of y0u and that is all that matters! And trust me, unfortunately, you'll feel waves of grieve forever. But the waves of happiness and the joy of Eddy and every delightful nuance of his Eddyness will also wash over you in waves and you will know he is with you!

Michelle! Cracking me up about your ex -sis outlaw! LMAO!clap Profoundly true!!!

Elizabeth, ditto every single sentiment! Well said! And ues, humanity is alive and well here! And you come up with the best quotations!

To add a little twist on what Alison said, we've created our own little "inner circle of humanity". What a great club to have membership!
